  1. The 46-year-old Kentucky native rejoins the production team from her breakthrough on Little Wild One and spins a broad spectrum of rock tapestries married to warm, personal musings centered on a common theme.
  2. An earthy soul-rock set that redeems Joan Osborne's occasionally mushy songwriting with full-blooded singing and deep roots-music grooves
  3. She's not above revisiting periods where the creative process of collaboration was symbiotic as well as successful.
  4. Joan Osborne didn't wander too far from the dynamic "Relish" after it hit in 1995, but her subsequent recordings haven't captured her as wonderfully all-around until Little Wild One.
  5. 60
    Here nothing has changed as she melds all these influences ub a tribute to her now beloved New York. [Dec 2008, p. 100]
  6. It spares us her bluesy, commercially unfriendly side and as a result she's made her best record since, yes, "Relish."
  7. 40
    It's all very well intended, but seldom rises above the superficial. [Dec 2008, p.108]
